Still got up and finished the session, we got fights to win!”Despite spending nearly eight hours in the UFC octagon throughout his successful career, Frankie Edgar is still susceptible to occasional errors.“Over 18 years in the game and I’m still making rookie mistakes,” Edgar wrote. “Forgot to lock the cage door when I was training Mark Grey and boom! I was expecting to feel the cage on my back but instead I felt the stairs dig into my back and the back of my head into the floor.The ex-UFC lightweight champion, who retired from professional fighting in November, shared a video on his Instagram on Monday.
